Robert Musil

"You load the space that surrounds you with a charge of increasing strength. The difference in intensity between imagining and actually being there becomes a joy that I feel."

-Robert Musil, from: Diaries: 1899-1942 p. 179

I don't think too much about your shirts.

Remember to write a thank you note to Ambien.

My Gran Fando.

Sometimes Bach makes me not relaxed.

Physical, as in two muskrats fighting with everything they've got.

I had a headache, so I hummed a lullaby while listening to a relaxation podcast.

Super tired and freaked.

The bottles are rattling in the recycling bin out in the courtyard.

Once you are an adult you can no longer smell yourself.

So it is written.

Sometimes when I talk to people I want to become one of Phil Hartman's characters.

One of Phil Hartman's characters when I talk to people sometimes.

Oud on the beloved.

Crowds in the museum at 1PM on a Saturday.

Wind? No, traffic.

Sunday morning.

Let the cod flowers know
this is my life and they are happy with it.
Light up the light with Can.
All hail those who can make this muck shine.
From a room gone wobbly, to the palm
pressed firmly on the bed. My Foster Grants,
my Blues Blockers, my Webelos.
This is called incessant knocking, from what I gather.
Here and there permission is given
so you feel like a mutant when I don't sleep.
The body and mind make a mushy quad.
Make attempts to flatten the head out
and become artless and beveled. When that bill
hits you're going to feel like a million dollars.
I just don't twist the air much anymore
because it is getting done on its own.
Head home. I realized the day would go along
a certain way. I knew I would act a certain way
with a deadbolt. Copper wire jutting from his ankle
and jaw. She is everywhere. I am here.

Governors Island (Studio, View, Ferry Landing)

A lot of info here.

Six from Governors Island

Thank you to the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council for my current residency on Governors Island.

Rosenthal, Fume, & Bourbon

Drunken Boat - Timidity


One doesn't walk so much as stroll
on the embankment as all strolling and civility
should be routine to you by now. Handheld devices or handholding
in general, I know. The redundancies are there
for your protection. Focal point: dread.
In today's discussion I hope to tread water
in the pool provided for your attention. You
should be familiar with my abilities by now
based on your frequency and hesitancy.
There will be other instances of interior
and exterior transformations
that we should get comfortable with in the coming
weeks. I encourage you to try a new hobby,
skate under the archway, neatly spread your
toast with jam, and other activities that are
usually done distractedly. Also, please make
sure that you send documentation of any activities
(whether photographs or personal notes)
describing the details of the above only.
I'll see to it that each person who participates
is challenged to transform their current personality traits
from said excursions. I like a little milk with my coffee,
so you'll be expected to know where to find
classic table milk and what quantity to
procure on the rare occasion that I drop by
unannounced with new cheers for your funk.
I'll let you know how to add them to a decade
by incorporating the establishment
of a thorough technique that is both transparent
and considerable. I would also like each one of you
to learn to identify the birds from unit one
not only by their external plumage
but also by their skeletal remains. Any questions?
Shoot me an email.
